Urban wrapped up 2019 by once again performing at Nashville's New Year's Eve party, where he paid musical tribute to artists who passed away in the previous year, including Ric Ocasek from The Cars, Marie Fredriksson from Roxette, and songwriter and producer Busbee.

2020 will likely see a new album from Urban, since he is devoting much of his time to creating music in the new year.


"To keep expanding the musicality that my life is –– the kind of music I get to listen to; the kind of music I get to make," Urban said of his goals for 2020. "For me, it's always about moving my center in everything in life. As long as my center keeps moving, it keeps me alive, invigorated, passionate, curious, hunger, engaged, interested, everything comes from that. So, hopefully that will, I KNOW that will continue."
